Sultan of Marawi Presides Over 5th Youth Congress Peace Summit

MarawilocationMarawi City is the capital city of the province of Lanao del Sur on the island of Mindanao in the Philippines.

It was here that the Fifth Youth Congress Peace Summit was held by The Royal Sultanate of Madaya Youth Organization with the support of ANT-Hiroshima and some local organizations, under the auspices of our friend, the Sultan of Marawi, Abdul Hamidullah Atar, who we know as Pogie-san. 🙂

Pogie-san was enthroned as Sultan of Marawi in December 2013. Here is a video compilation of some photos taken at his enthronement…

Thank you Pogie-san!
